5 Decor Ideas For A Cozy And Inviting Living Room

One of the biggest advantages of velvet upholstery is its texture. The soft and plush feel of velvet can add a layer of comfort to any seating area, making it perfect for snuggling up with a good book or enjoying a movie night with loved ones. Velvet also has a subtle sheen that can give your drawing room design a posh and glamorous edge for cozy decor.

When it comes to colour, velvet upholstery can come in a wide range of shades, from jewel tones to pastels to neutrals. This means that you can choose a colour that complements your existing decor or adds a pop of interest to a neutral space. Additionally, velvet upholstery can be found in a variety of patterns, including solids, stripes, and florals, allowing you to add texture and visual interest to modern living rooms.

  1. Cozy Floor Rugs

Sometimes a floor rug is all you need over your hard flooring to add texture and warmth for transforming your drawing room design and enhancing its aesthetic appeal. You can place a floor rug under your coffee table or in front of your couch to transform the living room space for a more cozy and welcoming ambience. 

Floor rugs

When it comes to choosing the right floor rugs for a warm and inviting living room design, keep it light and bright. It’s best to go for floor rugs with neutral colours that can pair well with the other elements of any modern living room design. Nestasia’s Boho Ezra handwoven rug can be an excellent choice for adding some coziness to your living room decor, thanks to its chunky handwoven knitted cotton design.

  1. Layer Textures

What makes a living room warm and cozy? Layering. There’s nothing more relaxing than turning on the air-conditioning and sinking into the soft, warm textures of your cozy living room decor during a hot summer evening. Layering and accessorising with soft throws and cushions is a must for warm and inviting modern living room decor. 

Comfy living room decor

Try experimenting with a combination of throws and cushions in chunky knitted designs and soft fabrics for the ultimate coziness. You can try out bright and vibrant throws and cushion covers if your living room decor is a bit on the neutral side to add some pops of colour. Nestasia’s soft cotton throw blanket can go perfectly with any living room design and add some cosy elegance to the room.

Pillow cases

You can also consider choosing suitable pillow covers to complement the throw to create a cohesive look for your living room design. For instance, Nestasia’s Peach knitted throw can pair beautifully with the vibrant and funky Pop Art cushion covers and lighten and brighten up your living room to set a cosy and welcoming ambience.  

Cushion covers

No matter which throws or cushion covers you choose to layer and accessorise your drawing room design, always consider the colour scheme. It’s best to have a selection of pillow covers and couch throws that go well with your existing colour palette for a cohesive and attractive living room interior design that’s both cozy and inviting.

  1. Stunning Wall Art

Art is always an excellent conversation starter and a good and engaging conversation can help make your guests feel right at home. That’s why curating framed wall artwork pieces to make your living room design resemble an art gallery is always a great decor idea. In fact, the right living room wall design can create a warm and welcoming vibe. 

Framed wall posters

While choosing the right wall art for your living room, always consider the available space. For instance, if you have a small living room layout, try to stick to small artwork pieces and avoid overcrowding the space with too many framed wall arts

On the other hand, if you have a large accent wall in your living room, you can pair together a collection of framed wall artwork and decorative photo frames for the living room to create a unique drawing room design. Thus, tasteful and stunning wall art can spark interesting and insightful conversations among guests, making them feel right at home in your living room. 

Decorative photo frames

For choosing the right wall art for the living room, the Boho women gallery wall art set from Nestasia can be an excellent pick to attract your guests and get the conversation going. You can also get your house guests to share their favourite travel stories with the vintage framed travel poster set being the perfect conversation starter.

  1. Add Some Golden Shimmer 

Interior design ideas for your living room largely revolve around choosing the most suitable decorative items for the living room, which can include, candle stands, decor showpieces, photo frames, decorative vases, and so much more.
